    Performance issues?

    Maybe limit the image size? It is not necessary to have large files for browser viewing, especially mobile devices.

    Behind the scenes

    I am a dark knight on a dark night, about 04:40. Not much to see with the naked eye, except my backpack illuminated by my headlamp. https://djessemay.com/portfolio/black-and-white-portfolio.html Leica S3, APO-Elmarit-S 180

    Best filters for landscape photography

    Matt, I use the Lee push-on filter holder with the S24 lens when I need a filter, which is not often. There is no vignetting and no light leaks with a ND filter. You need to fill the small gap between the filter holder and the lens. I apply small beads of silicone on the filter holder.

    Behind the scenes

    The typical experience of things not going according to plan. Mother Nature had other ideas. After nightfall, my intended shot was blocked by an unexpected cloud mass. This is normal in the mountains unfortunately. What to do? I laid down for a few hours, but could not sleep. I returned to the...

    I am working on a project "Transitions." I did this shot last month. Tomorrow, I go into the mountains for more nighttime work. Leica S3, APO-Elmarit-S 180

    I quite like the shot with the train. Missed plans create opportunities. Well done.

    The process is simple; arrive on location, set up and wait until dark. This time, the temperature did not drop below freezing, therefore remaining comfortable was not a problem (I have frozen body parts in the past). Leica S3, APO-Elmar-S 180

    Cloud Storage

    I would send multiple drives to different locations for safety. One can send a drive to a cloud storage provider also.

    Cloud Storage

    What do you plan to use to access the cloud files? It seems accessing files on a drive would be more covenient.

    Gear in backpack, trekking poles, headlamp, hike to location and wait. Much more comfortable this time of year than in winter. Leica S3, APO-Macro-Summarit-S 120

    Fun with MF images 2021

    This is Phase 2 of a proof-of-concept for a photo exhibition. There are several "firsts" in this project. 1. First time using Leica S3 medium format camera for video. 2. First time for me playing all parts of a piece of music (Winter, composed by Antonio Vivaldi). 3. First time using Yamaha SVC...

    Leica S Type 007 in 2021?

    Not only is the image quality of the S 007 superb, the user experience is exceptional. I own S3 and S 006, and have used S 007. You will not be disappointed. I have no experience with H lenses, however I know several people that are satisfied with S cameras with H lenses.

    Thank you. That is the plan. I just returned from several days in Saas-Almagell, so this is new. Typically, I wait and make many small adjustments until I am satisfied for printing.
